Bringing people together to talk about the tough issues around how we live together well.

Everyone is welcome to join these safe spaces AS we discuss issues in local neighbourhoods that people want to address, eat together and get to know each other.

Real People, Honest Talk sessions were run in the last couple of years in 4 different areas: Black Country, Lancashire, Luton, and West Yorkshire.
In 2019 we are expanding the programme to the 10 local areas where we operate.

For more details and to register your interest for future events, please contact our local coordinators.

Confirmed dates:

Our objectives.


Bring people together within local communities by providing opportunities for positive, constructive and personal encounters and interaction between people who live near one another and have different outlooks, cultures, attitudes or beliefs.

Facilitate open and honest conversation about issues of concern to everyday people in local communities that could otherwise be difficult to talk about.

Create safe spaces in which difficult issues associated with living together well amidst differences in outlook, culture, attitudes and beliefs can be discussed openly and constructively, at city-wide level, and in local communities.

Provide a springboard for further conversations, interactions or collaborative action, strengthening local civil society.


Have you seen our Bringing People Together campaign yet?

With this, we are challenging others to recognise their similarities during the current turbulent political time our nation is experiencing. encouraging people to unite over the one subject that unites us all: community.
